Challenges Facing CPA’s

 CPAsBeing a CPA presents a unique set of challenges, much like other professions.  During certain times of the year, the duties of a CPA increase exponentially.  Tax time is so often stressful for clients, and more often than not, a great deal of that stress is filtered down to the CPA.

Time is against most of us, there’s no denying it.  There never seems to be enough hours in the day to get everything done that we need to accomplish.  During tax season, if you’re a CPA, chances are you need almost double the amount of hours to get everything finished.  Add in a reliance on technology and staff members, and things can start to get dicey in a hurry.  Think about it this way, if one member of your office were to slow down, miss a day, or a computer were to break down, what effect would that have on your workflow?

On top of dealing with increasing workload, potential technology failures, and unreliable staff CPAs still have clients to deal with.  Some clients expect their CPA to have all the answers, and have those answers immediately.  Clients want more and more, but want to pay less and less.  CPA firms, in turn, have no choice but to lower their prices to compete with other services and then have to hire less staff.  With less staff, workload increases, and a CPA ends up bogged down in their duties.
